In today’s edition of Friday Fun Links, I want to feature one of my favorite art forms: paper-cut art.

First up, David Brownings. He makes some pretty sweet shoes, among other things.

Next is probably my favorite Etsy artist of all time, Jayme McGowan of Roadside. Her work is intricate and beautiful. Here’s the piece I was too late in snatching up and have pined over constantly since.

Then we have Elsa Mora. This piece has to be one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen! She has a great blog with paper-cut how-tos and insight into her work. Click here to read the interesting post about this piece.

Lastly, Lisa Hannigan’s video for her song “I Don’t Know” is truly impressive. Throughout the song she creates a fantastic scene with cut paper.

There are plenty of other great examples of paper-cut art out there, but I’ll stop here so as not to be excessive.

Have a fantastic weekend!

For today’s edition of Friday Fun Links, I’d like to share a couple artists whose work intrigued me this week.

First, I did a blog post (which you can see here) for the BEE Team on artist Leslie Wayne, who builds up encaustic-like layers and textures with oils. Very impressive.

Secondly, I found Adam Parker Smith’s “Umbrella Cloud” to be stunningly beautiful, and then was further bowled over by the rest of his work. And then I realized I had seen his work before, in the form of “Sunset Now.”

His work has got me thinking about large-scale installations involving encaustic. :)

Have a wonderful weekend!

Ever wondered what the world looked like from the perspective of an animal? Well, you need wonder no more, because this guy straps cameras to their heads. My favorites are the armadillo, the lamb, and the alligator.

This video shows a study of children’s willpower. They are given a marshmallow and asked to wait to eat it. If they can be patient, they can have two. That’s hard!

Make your own song with brightly-colored raindrops.

This artist is pretty darn cool. Colorful typography from paper.

Have a wonderful weekend!

(I am perhaps a bit more excited than I should be for this post.)

Well, you know how the internet tends to throw a lot of things our way? I have decided each Friday to share some fun links to art-related things (some loosely related—food is art, right?) I have encountered throughout the week. Here is my first edition of Friday Fun Links!

I love anything bee-related, and this shelf bracket is no exception.

And in honor of our road trip, a fun time-lapse video of another cross-country driver.

Math + Photography = Awesome.

If you enjoy the onslaught of pumpkin everything that fall brings, you must make these cookies (my recommendation: leave out the chocolate and add more oats).

Lastly, I think we can all aspire to be this generous, inspirational and… awesome!

Have a splendid weekend. :)

I want to be an artist when I grow up. I quit my job to try it. I will chronicle the results here.
